Wellesley Women In Business
We prepare women for dazzling careers.
History & Vision
Founded in 1988 as Wellesley College’s first pre-business association, Wellesley Women in Business (WWIB) seeks to help women build a strong network, find career direction and achieve ambitious goals. We hope to cultivate members’ interest in business, expand their understanding in specific sectors and industries, prepare them for the transition from a liberal arts education into their future business careers, and – most importantly – equip young women with the tools necessary to seize their talent and succeed in the world of business.
What We Do
WWIB holds regular panels, lectures, workshops, and field trips to connect students with alumnae and leaders in business professions of their interests and expose them to business graduate programs early on.
WWIB Leadership – Message From the Co-Presidents
As Co-Presidents, we are incredibly honored to have the opportunity to serve the Wellesley community and lead a passionate, motivated and dynamic team in 2016-2017. Over the past two years, we have seen WWIB grow into a strong, active community that brings together current students and alumnae. We are incredibly excited about WWIB’s new initiatives and its growing impact on Wellesley’s campus and beyond. This year has already brought about several milestones that we are incredibly proud of: we increased our membership base to 400 (more than 15% of the student population); we expanded and restructured our executive board to bring more talent and ideas; we also begun exciting new partnerships with companies like Accenture and Getmii, a Thailand-based social media startup transforming the searching space. While maintaining our annual events such as the HUWIB IBC conference, Summer Internship Panel, and BLC Career Mentoring, we also aim to expand our scope in order to greater serve the diverse needs of Wellesley’s student body. We are look forward to building on our strengths and utilizing our strong, historical relationships with the Center for Work and Service and the Wellesley Business Leadership Council to make this another memorable year for WWIB.
